A user with the X (password doesn't expire) flag on his account was forced to change his password because it expired on a system with 

pdbedit -P'maximum password age'

account policy "maximum password age" description: Maximum password age, in seconds (default: -1 => never expire passwords)

What's going on? why is samba ignoring this and expiring passwords anyways?

samba Version: 2:3.6.3-2ubuntu2.3 on ubuntu Precise

But I'm having the same issue with whatever version of samba is current on debian squeeze.
